We are wonderful group of people on our own but what if we supported a black business atleast once a month? How great would that be? I’ll tell you briefly.
Collectivley we have to want to expand, build, grow, and give longevity to our communities.I support every ethnicity but I make an conscious effort to support a black business owner due to the lack of attention we receive. In order to do that we must support one another and keep our dollars circulating within. There is so much talent that’s being witheld and I know this to be factual because I see it on a daily basis. There’s a group of friends/family members right now who individually have a talent that could open a business. That homegirl who can cook/bake.. What about the brother whose good with money…. Or.. or…the friend whose managed employees. These are examples of quality individuals who can come together as one and start a business. Just food for thought. As an entrepreneur it’s not the easiest thing to do but I’m going for it and I encourage you to do the same. What do you have to loose?
Today I stitched a wonderful patch to my dark blue denim jacket from Old Navy… I purchased my patch from a black owned company by the name of coloringpins. My experience was phenomenal and I received exactly what I ordered in a timely manner. I plan to pair my denim with a pair of funky spring color shorts and a comfy tee and possibly a pair of strappy sandals.
Denim can go a long way, create new outlooks and not to mention very verstile. Denim pieces have been cut into knee pants, shorts, made into choker necklaces, earrings, even braclets. All of those peices can create a BOLD statement and be paired with anything.
In addition to the greatness of denim material, patches are a hot commodity not to mention undescrible artwork. You can even catch R & B singer Monica rocking a long dust coat full of patches.The patches can be stitched with needle and thread or another option is to iron your patches to the article of clothing. I chose to stitch my patch just because I love to sew, sewing frees my mind and allows me to use my hands since I am a hands-on kind of girl. Besides stiching the patch means I can remove the patch at anytime and apply the patch to another garment. So the patch work is not only cute, fashionable, with a touch of eye candy but also reusable. When I think of patches there’s not a limit to what I can create. A variety of patches can be ordered online regardless of what you are looking for whether it be an ice cream cone which would be a dope patch for the summer months, or a daisy which would take your spring break to another level. You can even add word patches or phrases. I love the patch idea because it’s such an expression. Reminds me of an walking emoji!!!
Let’s be exceptionally with our wardrobe and not basic….
Peace and love.. Until next time.
